'Landlord' slammed for renting out room for £700 with outrageous conditions including showering at 'agreed times'

A LIVE-in-landlord has been slammed for her spare room advert that says a tenant may only shower "during agreed times".

The bedroom at the Southside property in Glasgow, Scotland, was initially listed at £700-per-month on the basis that the tenant only stayed there from Monday to Friday.



The landlord, known only as Kate, said occasional weekends would be negotiable at an extra cost.

Following backlash, Kate then ramped the rent up to £750-per-month, allowing her potential tenant, aged between 20 – 40, to live there for the full week.

The SpareRoom listing states that the flatmate must only use showers during agreed times and that those have to be agreed in advance.

No pets are allowed but guests can visit – only if landlord Kate has been informed and agrees beforehand.

Despite the live-in-landlord working from home they have also demanded that any applicants are not working from home and do not vape or smoke.

Social media users have been left shocked by the strict house rules of the property.

The original property listing said

"I work from home, and am looking for a 30s or 40s year-old non-smoking, non-vaping individual to rent my spare room on a Mon – Fri basis (occasional weekends also negotiable at extra cost).

“My room is ideal for an NHS worker at the New Victoria Hospital located opposite.

The ad reads: "You will have use of my shower during agreed times and your own downstairs bathroom with a roll-top bath, which I will also have access to (times to be announced in advance).


"The cost is £700 pcm and includes all bills. There is a visitor parking space in the car park, which you can make use of if available.

“You will be expected to clean your room and bathroom, and we will share the cleaning on a rolling weekly basis (though I will do 70% given I am here full-time).

“No pets allowed. You can have guests if agreed in advance."

Glasgow resident Sanne Jehoul drew attention to the bizarre listing on Twitter on Monday writing: "Pay this live-in landlord a cool £700pcm for a room from Monday to Friday only.

"Shower times to be announced in advance. Visitors to be announced in advance. In the up and coming G42 area!

"You only have to do 30 per cent of the cleaning! Weekends negotiable at extra cost, but only sometimes ok?"

The post has now collected over 1,200 likes and hundreds of retweets.

Social media users also left comments after being perplexed by the property

Many of the reactions poked fun at the listing.

One person said "cool bars really sold it for me, ones I can't enjoy on weekends though. Damn it" while another wrote "we should all message her and ask her about the bathroom schedule."

Another person said they reported the post for her audacity while another said "so, so much wrong with this for sure."

This afternoon the listing was removed from the SpareRoom website after continued criticism online.
